Butte Archives

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Butte Archives

Reports say that the archives were once the old fire station, and the basement there has seen over 200 episodes of hauntings. Folks say the fire alarms will ring out in the night although their power has been disconnected, and witnesses have seen a group of ghostly firefighters wiling away their night by playing cards. Books may be thrown, and some even say that the archives building may warp back in time to become a fancy firefighters’ ball full of firemen in formal attire.
